  • Description


    Hello Workaway travellers!

    Am a Swiss 52 years old lady, who would like to share with others travellers of the world, as I love travelling around the world too. I used to travel more in Asia.
    Am speaking French, English, a little Italian and German.
    Your help can be very precious, especially for some specific work, which has started some years ago in a kind of family project.
    Am sure you will like the place, and appreciate the nature all around...
    I would be happy to welcome you...

    Looking more for abroad travellers, from non-French language, so that the cultural exchange can be more profitable for the volunteer.
